    2 days, 2 parks, with a 2 year old who loves Frozen. Do you recommend Magic Kingdom and Epcot since that's where the Frozen characters are? Also, do we need the Magic Bands/card if were staying at a hotel in Kissimmee?

    Hi Stephanie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with a two-year-old is sure to be a magical time. There are many great resources for Planning for Preschool Kids & Little Ones. Disney has thought of virtually everything to make sure that you and your family have a fantastic time! Make sure to check out the Baby Care Centers. Here you can take a break from the heat and change your two-year-old on a full-size changing table!

    I always recommend visiting Magic Kingdom Park as part of any First Visit. This theme park is such an iconic place. There are so many fantastic attractions to experience. Some of our favorites include Dumbo the Flying Elephant; it’s a small world, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, and Peter Pan’s Flight.  There are also many fantastic Character meet and greets.

    If your child loves Frozen, then Epcot will also be a great place to visit. You can Meet Anna and Elsa at the Royal Sommerhus and experience Frozen Ever After. In addition to these offerings, there are many other great attractions for little ones, including The Seas with Nemo & Friends.

    If you are staying outside of the Walt Disney World Resort, you don’t need to purchase a MagicBand unless you want to. You can enter the Theme Parks by tapping your valid Theme Park Ticket. You can also use that ticket to take advantage of your FastPass+ return times. Since you are staying offsite, FastPass+ plans can be made beginning at 7:00 AM eastern time 30 days in advance of your stay!

    I hope that you have the most magical time making memories during your upcoming stay!
